i ride at ealing riding school on a regular basis i think the staff are freindly, and the horses are great, well looked after and the yard yet small, always tidy :) theres a good atmoshpere, easy to fit in.
I go to ealing riding school every week and i love it. THE HORSES ARE TREATED WELL and the people there are always helpful. The ponies have nicely kept stables and they are kept happy with the small arena at the end of the riding school with toys, for the horses to play with.
Both prices and tuition were good. No indoor arena so training is outdoors. Previously I've only visited stables with large grounds where the horses are fully exercised and tame. At Ealing the horses are frustrated and the grounds don't seem to be large enough to let them fully exercise or reach a proper run. Spent a day there and one of the horses I only saw trot around a couple of times. By the end of the day the horses were still full of energy and kicking off in the stables, visibly frustrated and very nippy. Horses can nip but it's very much the norm with these horses. They don't seem to have been familiarised with each other and frequently picked fights! Ok if you are used to dealing with more stubborn horses but they are difficult to control and I wouldn't ride here if inexperienced.
I used to ride here a lot when I was younger and would constantly have my lessons cancelled (without notice) in favour of unplesant hacks down the side of the roads around the school. Furthermore, I got an expensive riding hat stolen there when I left my gear alone for 5 minutes. If you have a child who is fairly competent and wants a stubborn mount to give a strong leg to then go ahead, but for any other category of rider, this is not ideal. Perhaps I am out of touch but the theft was the last straw for me and I have not returned since.
Riding. I go every week and it is the best place ever.

I have been riding here for over 2 years from my first ever lesson at the age of 30 & there are plenty of mounts suitable for adult beginners, some of the horses are very good quality for a riding school as most are privately owned but used by the school. No inside school, but has 3 floodlit menages which means lessons are available in the evenings making it possible for those of us with jobs to learn. A little bit run down compared with the pictures you see in the books! but the horses are well cared for, the tuition seems to be pretty good & it's good value for money compared with other London area schools.
